Holocaust Survivor and Author to Give Talk at HMC Oct. 23
TV news producer and author Debbie Bornstein Holinstat and her father, Holocaust survivor Michael Bornstein, will be featured at a member’s only special talk and book signing at the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus at 12:15 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 23. There, they will discuss Survivors Club, the book they co-wrote. Through a series of photos, recently discovered documents and memories shared, Debbie will relate the unforgettable true story of how a father’s courageous wit, a mother’s fierce love and one perfectly timed illness saved her father’s life during Holocaust. Listeners will undoubtedly recognize the iconic photo of a four-year-old Michael at liberation, but few people knew of the miracles behind his survival until he and Debbie released their narrative non-fiction bestseller Survivors Club: The True Story of a Very Young Prisoner of Auschwitz.
